The gravity is about a third of Earth's, so you'll have to use special Mars vehicles that you'll find there http://www.rigsofrods.com/repository/view/4881 . You really must download that vehicle file because the map will have problem loading if Ror cannot find the trucks.
There is no vegetation on the planet (yet) but set your configuration to 100% vegetation as fields of boulders and rocks use this feature.
Please use Caelum and anisotropic filtering.
The map is very large. There may be some issues due to its size and the way a lot of objects are displayed. No other feature of the configurator than those aforementioned really has to be set on (lights, particles, shadow, etc), so don't push the system, try to find the lowest settings instead if you have problems. For instance you may have to have Ror play on one core instead of two, if you have problems with a shaking camera. Beta-testers reported an impossibility to load the map, a group missing. Try again, it will most likely work the second time. Other issues were reported, so check the Miniredmars WIP thread for information.MINIREDMARS
A lot of details about its making is in the thread, so don't hesitate, there is a lot to read. But if you want a more concise matter, check the travellers book. It gives all the key features of the map, what to do and how, etc. MINIREDMARS
Thanks a lot to Lifter, Tdev, Jov, Neorej16, DeGa, Miura, JohnV, LJFHutch, Aivar, Brickman, Simpeligent for their help, and anyone supported my work during these 16 months.
This update shouldn't show that annoying red cross
PLEASE : disable dual-core hyperthreading - use simple core
I'm currently working on a smaller Mars map : Argyre, which you'll find in the WIP section. MINIREDMARS-ARGYRE
This is a low grade Miniredmars map, not quite a FPS version, but easier to handle by slow computers. There s no groundmodel on it so the default groundmodel will apply. Due to low gravity, this default groundmodel might be irrelevant (vehicles gliding too long), so please check this MINIREDMARS to change the default groundmodel.
This is Tuanga Challenge Death Road Style Terrain. A remote village called Tuanga is in need of supplies for the winter ahead, only problem is, its 14000ft above sea level, and the nearest depo is next to the sea, (how convenient). Your challenge or mission whatever you want to call it, is to deliver the supplies safely, and quickly to the village, of course, You'll need to own a truck first. Deliver whatever you think they need, whether it be food or a new log cabin.
With 14km of terrifying cliff edge road, facing 5000ft drops and extreamly rough roads, Ice patches and hairpin switchbacks, Tuanga is sure to be your toughest challenge to date!
Thanks to Miura for this monumental update
Now with working races and the bug where you fall through the road has gone! All thanks to Miura
